Re: P.Waytha Moorthy appeals to K.L High Court Judge against Registrar’s order of RM60,000.00 for security for costs be deposited in Court to continue with defamation suit against P.Ramasamy DCM II Penang, A.Sivanesan, V.Ganabatirau & (ASP Vasantha Kumar).
Today P.Waytha Moorthy filed an appeal to the Kuala Lumpur High Court Judge against the Senior Assistant Registrar Pn.Faerah Nurul Ainni binti Izany Order on 14/10/10 of RM60,000.00 as security for costs to be deposited into the court registry in respect of each of four Defendants failing which the defamation suit against the defendants can be applied to be struck out.
This suit was filed on 31/12/2009 as the Defendants namely P.Ramasamy, the Deputy Chief Minister of Penang, A Sivanesan, ex Perak Exco Member, V.Ganabathirau and ASP Vasantha Kumar were continuously defaming P.Waythamoorthy and Hindraf on the false allegations of the mismanagement of the Hindraf funds collected from Hindraf supporters at the height of the 25th November 2007 Hindraf Rally and thereabouts. This was despite P.Waytha Moorthy having made public the said accounts that only a total sum of RM451,617.51 that Hindraf was to account for and never the RM700,000.00 or the alleged millions as was claimed by the aforesaid Defendants. This civil suit was filed to clear P.Waytha Moorthy’s and Hindraf’s name. But the Defendants made this Court application as they do not want this case to go for full trial as the truth about their lies, bad faith and defamation of P.Waythamoorthy and Hindraf would surface.
This is also despite a formal written Parliamentary question to the Home Minister in the Malaysian Parliament by Y.B. P.Ramasamy on 22/3/10 on this alleged Hindraf funds mismanagement. The Home Minister himself had cleared Hindraf of any financial mismanagement and answered in Parliament that the Attorney General has closed the file as there was no further action to be taken. (full details of accounts prepared by Chartered Accountants Pathmarajah & Co for the said RM451,617.51, P.Waytha Moorthy’s public Media Statement dated 28/1/2010 and the said Parliamentary Question and Answer is enclosed hereinbelow and can be accessed at www.humanrightspartmalaysia.com ).
The said Senior Assistant Registrar had on 14/10/10 made this award as P.Waytha Moorthy was resident in London and not on Malaysian soil and in the event he loses the civil suit, the Defendants may not be able to recover the Court costs due to them and thus this court order asking P.Waytha Moorthy to deposit RM60,000.00 into the High Court Registry for each of the said defendants as possible court costs.
